FUNCTION"

NAME
       XkbAllocGeomSectionDoodads  -  Allocate  doodads that are specific to a
       section

SYNOPSIS
       Status XkbAllocGeomSectionDoodads ( section, num_needed )
             XkbSectionPtr section;
             int num_needed;

ARGUMENTS
       - section
              section for which doodads should be allocated

       - num_needed
              number of new doodads required

DESCRIPTION
       Xkb provides a number of functions to allocate and  free  subcomponents
       of  a  keyboard  geometry. Use these functions to create or modify key-
       board geometries.  Note that these functions merely allocate space  for
       the  new  element(s), and it is up to you to fill in the values explic-
       itly in your code. These allocation functions increase sz_*  but  never
       touch  num_* (unless there is an allocation failure, in which case they
       reset both sz_* and num_* to zero). These functions return  Success  if
       they  succeed, BadAlloc if they are not able to allocate space, or Bad-
       Value if a parameter is not as expected.

       XkbAllocGeomSectionDoodads allocates num_needed doodads and  adds  them
       to the specified section.  No initialization of the doodads is done.

       To free geometry doodads, use XkbFreeGeomDoodads.

DIAGNOSTICS
       BadAlloc       Unable to allocate storage

       BadValue       An argument is out of range
